Recall that The Messiah is the candidate that "transcends race"

Cheeyeah, right. Not even close.

This, from the party that brings up the "Willie Horton" ad every four years. So, next time they do, laugh hysterically and point out the above example.

This is a well researched intelligent piece that makes some good points, though I do not see a race card played here. However, there are two problems: In my view, both McCain and Limbaugh are so fluid that it is next to impossible to pin them down on most issues. Said another way, both will say anything at any time to suit the moment and the context.

And there is one more problem: I take great offense at your continued insult to all who regard Jesus as the Messiah. You ought to be ashamed, Hube. Oh I know, you cannot help yourself, willing to sacrifice values for political purposes. Pathetic!

If you do not, then you're even more stupid than I thought.

As for The Messiah bit, are you now speaking for all Christians, Perry? You know that Jews believe in a Messiah as well, just not Christ? Am I insulting Jews, too?

I really don't care what you take offense too, Perry. I take offense at your ridiculous hypocrisy and blind partisanship masquerading as "objectivity." So?

I thought you would reconsider, Hube, though I suppose I'm not surprised, as your superior attitude dominates your personality. And you are not partisan? In the extreme? Only an extremist would denigrate Christ like you do, using his name as a pejorative. You and Rush, disgusting!

Posted by: Perry Hood at September 19, 2008 02:32 PM

Why would I reconsider, Perry, when it is beyond clear that I AM superior ... to you?

Using "Messiah" does not "denigrate" Christ, especially since the term can be used in the generic sense.

And you know what's REALLY disgusting? Pathetic fossilized hypocrites like yourself.

If I knew Perry in person, I would organize an intervention. Dude is either crazy or debilitatingly stupid.

Such a jackass...to criticize you for MOCKINGLY calling Obama the Messiah. It denigrates Christ to criticize others for worshiping a FALSE IDOL LIKE OBAMA? Since when?

Get help Perry...seriously.

Hube muttered: Using "Messiah" does not "denigrate" Christ, especially since the term can be used in the generic sense."

Wrong again, Hube. If you used the term "Messiah" "generically", you would not capitalize it. You have hardly an ounce of civility, just like Rush!

Yeah, well, whatever Perry. Keep being offended. I'll keep using "Messiah." Just remember that you hardly speak for all Christians (and Jews). You only speak for a small moonbat segment of the BDS-infected Left.

Posted by: Hube at September 20, 2008 09:43 AM

I don't claim to speak for anyone other than myself, Hube. But your refusal to use the lower case for messiah, if you must use this name generically, reveals your stubbornness and incivility. Of course you deserve to be called on this insult to all Christians. I predict that many would agree with me.

Posted by: Perry Hood at September 20, 2008 01:22 PM

Maybe I'm under the devious influence of Karl Rove, Perry. That, or maybe since it's a TITLE given to Obama, that's why it's capitalized.

Understand this: I don't care if "many" agree with you. They're probably the same type of hypocritical moonbat that you are. And look in the mirror when stating stubbornness and incivility, fossil.

Posted by: Hube at September 20, 2008 01:36 PM

"fossil, moonbat, old man, on and on with your personal attacks. No, Hube, don't put your incivility on to my behavior. Where is it? You are quite brave when you make personal attacks under the cover of a moniker. It is all quite childish and immature, certainly not what one would expect of a person in such an important and noble profession as yours. It's time to stop this, right now!

Posted by: Perry Hood at September 20, 2008 03:44 PM

The Energizer Bunny strikes again. *YAWN* I've already documented the numerous instances of your rude, snide and uncivil behavior here and elsewhere. And what if I wrote under the name on my credit card? What are you implying -- that you'd be all "Mr. Tough" and show up at my doorstep to fight me? OOOOOooooooohhhhh! I'm so scared.

Here's a bit of advice: You don't tell me what to do on MY blog. If you don't like my comments and think I am uncivil etc. ... STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM HERE. It's really quite simple. Either that, or stop with the constant repetitive nonsense in your comments (which even several DE liberals have called you out on) or I'LL keep you away via editorial privilege. Got it?

Willie Horton was FIRST made a political issue by Donna Brazil, an African American woman and a Democrat who was managing Gore's Primary Campaign at the time.

Posted by: anoni at September 21, 2008 01:33 PM

To be clear, that was in 1988, not 2000.

Hello, I'm a Christian. For the record I don't mind the captial M Messiah title being used because of the reason it's being used. It's to point out how Obama is being treated. Not a messiah but like the Second Coming. It's being given to him as a title, not a description. As far as I know, titles get a capital letter, like secretary of defense, chief executive officer, and the like. (See how that looks wrong with small letters?)

I'm more offended when Jesus Christ is used as a swear word, or when he's mischaracterised to suit a particular POV, like that bit about Pilate recently. I'm not even offended when G4's Attack of the Show breaks out "Office Jesus", because I get the joke. (The bit where "Jewish mother stereotype" Mary calls his answering machine is hilarious, if you ever heard it.) Although it occasionally doesn't work, it's a comedy error, not any perceived slam on Christians. Some of which I could point out on the rare occasions they're used in other segments.
